ResolutionsResolutions by Carol Warham
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Resolutions is a light, easy read romance set in Yorkshire.

Carly Mitchell is returning to the small town of Yeardon, which she left abruptly a year ago; she has now come back to face her demons and make apologies.

As the story unfolds we learn that Carly jilted her fiancé at the alter and no one has heard from her since then. Most people in town are still angry and unwelcoming towards her. However, Ben Thornton, the new young Doctor, offers her friendship, even after hearing the rumours.

Whilst Carly tries to sort out the complex mix she left behind, the situation becomes worse before it gets resolved. Her blossoming friendship with Ben is also tested by the arrival of his ex-partner.

This was a sweet little romance, but the story and the dialogue felt a little old-fashioned for the…

George is a middle-management, middle-class, middle-aged guy who hates his job and struggles to stay connected to his wife and teenage children. Most guys might end up with a steamy affair and a flashy car for their midlife crisis, but George gets a quirky, philosophical physics professor named Shiloh. Trapped with this mysterious misfit on his morning commuter train, George is dragged into awkward conversations about love, fear, music, and the meaning of life. Shiloh asks George to beta-test an app he wrote for the new Apple Watch–and with a free watch included, how could he say no?
When tragedy strikes, throwing George out of his uncomfortable comfort zone, he…

Match Me If you CanMatch Me If you Can by Michele Gorman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Match Me If You Can is a RomCom set in London and features internet dating.

Catherine, ‘London’s Best Date Doctor’, shares her business with ex-husband Richard, although his role is passive. Clients choose packages like ‘Love Match’, or ‘RecycLove’, the latter of which involves bringing in an ex, and both partners providing a romantic evaluation of the other. But Richard is about to sell his half of the business to his fiancé, Magda. Feeling hurt that Richard’s love life has moved on so quickly, Catherine is even more surprised when Magda insists on an active role in the job.

Away from work, Richard and Magda want to be friends with Catherine, both seeking her advice on their wedding plans, which is both painful and awkward for Catherine, who certainly had my admiration; I’m not sure I…

Title: Tempted by Mr. Wrong

Author: Jacqui Biggar

Category: Romantic Suspense

My Rating: 4 Star

My Review:

We are introduced to Tammy-Jo as she wanders down the rain soaked street in broken heels after being humiliated by her husband at the Country Club. Immediately we get the impression of a strong woman who, despite her predicament, is still sassy.

Jason arrives on the scene like a knight in shining armour (or rather, a cute chap in a Mustang) and we begin to learn there’s a history between the two. Pulled together by their parent’s relationship, TJ and Jason are step-siblings, but ten years ago their teenage hormones got the better of them, and they explored a relationship. It was Jason who suddenly walked away without explanation and TJ is still hurting.

Married to Tim, a power-hungry man, TJ…

#Newrelease My Review of The Truth And Lies Of Ella Black by @emily_barr @penguinrandom #EllaBlack

Rosie Amber

The Truth and Lies of Ella Black by [Barr, Emily]The Truth And Lies Of Ella Black is a dark, intriguing story that, with a seventeen-year-old protagonist, is suitable for both young and adult readers. The crossing out of Ella’s name in the title certainly piqued my interest before I had even read the first page.

The story covers a timespan of forty days in Ella’s life. At the start, she is an ordinary teenager enjoying a school holiday. An only child, she attends an all-girls school and enjoys art. This, however, is where ‘normal’ ends. There are two sides to Ella: the good girl tries to behave well, work hard and fit in with her schoolmates, but Bad Ella is always lurking in the background…

Bad Ella demands time and space. Bad Ella is strong, frightening and unpredictable; when she demands to be let out, Ella has to lock herself in her room, lest she escape.

The story takes…
